This is a great looking fella for one of your fist ones.
Much better than my first.

I like the dark finish particularly. The glossy surface looks like an ancient patina. Definately a piece that carries the ancient energies.

Aloha!

Very NICE! I also love the dark finish! I notice you are in Aurora. Ever want to stop by, we are not too far... just by O'Hare airport. We can exchange ideas! www.thetikiterrace.com

Hey thanks all for the kind words everyone. I really liked how the finish turned out too.

Scott- I have had a Tiki Terrace newspaper ad taped to my fridge for months now. I definitely need to get there soon. The place looks amazing.


Thanks again!
